Wrapping Up Week #2! Here's What We Learned...

It's been another productive week in the Lion Room! This week we focused on learning the names of our new friends. We played games and created art. We learned how to greet each other. We explored math materials and learned how to use them. This week we celebrated Patriot Week by learning all about our flag, studying the Pledge of Allegiance, and creating patriotic art. We learned about Mat Man to help us accurately draw people. We read SO MANY great books! Our days are long, but the children are doing such an amazing job learning all our routines and procedures. We even visited a very special place at Hilton called the Project Room. Ask your child all about it!!

Important Reminders

Next week, JK/K students will line up in one long line at the front of the school. Safety patrol and teachers will be available to assist.

We have a healthy snack each day. The calendar was sent home at the beginning of the year and is also linked on our homepage. Please send in the specific items located at the top of the schedule. Thank you for fueling our brains!

Thank you so much for helping your lion keep up with his/her name tag! These can now be permanently placed on your child's backpack. I will have a name tag for each student starting Monday that will be only worn at school.

Parent Pick Up... Please have your child's number (the one printed in black on the orange background) VISIBLE on your child's backpack. Some suggestions are to put it in a luggage tag, hole punch it and put on a keyring on a zipper, or use clear packing tape to adhere it to a shoulder strap. Even if your child is rarely a parent pick up, please attach the number anyway. You may need it some day! Just to clarify, the SMALL one gets attached to the backpack; the LARGE one is for you to place in the mailboxes outside.

Friday folders are due Monday. In today's you will find a big math packet... It is "for your information" only. Please keep the packet at home; no need to return completed activities. It's a great resource if you are curious about what math time looks like in the kindergarten classroom.
